Emily Recycled shirt dress

Added Apr 11, 2008

Schenectady, New...






I had men’s XL shirt from Jcrew and refashioned it to dress. I modified Emily shirt pattern to make it longer and have A-line shape. I tried to save cuffs, collar and all the buttons and button holes. I even put JJ’s blouse like frills from scraps.

    I really like your idea of making an A-line shirtdress from this kind of fabric. And those frills add a nice girly touch.
